What to see when in… Sydney

So, I thought it is time to share some of my favourite spots in the best city in the world with you guys: Sydney!!!! For me the city that combines it all: Amazing beaches, a gorgeous city, great shopping locations, the best nightlife and just the smell of freedom. Aah, I just want to go back when I start talking about it.

I spend my first four months in Australia here as I was working as a nanny in the suburb of Frenchs Forest. I can tell you: I had the time of my life. So here they are: My favourite spots…

My favourite beach: Manly

Take the ferry at Circular Quay and you arrive at beautiful Manly. It is a cute little Surfers suburb with a great atmosphere and nice little restaurants at the beach. On top of the mountain you can find a castle. Nicole Kidman got married here

When you go on top of that mountain you have the most amazing view over the city and the best: This spot is not full of tourists yet. Another trip: Do the Manly beach walk, but take some water with you

Lets go into the city now. take the ferry and you have a stunning view over the harbour, the opera house and the harbour bridge

Get the bus to the Gap and follow the tracks. You will se great cliffs and have a great view over the ocean. Freedom calling

Don´t forget Bondi Beach. Not the best beach as it is super overcrowded, but it belongs to a visit to Sydney. Go on the beachwalk

So let´s go shopping. You find all the big brands in Sydney of course, but one of my favourites is Paddy´s Market in China Town. You find hundreds of stalls with stuff you may or may not need: Bags, T shirts, souvenirs, electronics,…

And now…party. I had my best nights in this city. The Ivy is very posh and has a great VIP area with a pool. The dance floor is open so that you can dance under the stars. I had the pleasure once and it is so much funny. If you arrive on a friday before ten o´clock the entry is free.

The Argyl. I don’t really like the music and the dance floor is tiny, but it is worth a visit as they have the best toilets ever. Space eggs…

And last but not least: The Lowenbrau. If you want a fun night out with a good crowd, great music and awesome german shots com here. An there are not even that many Germans here 🙂

What to see when in… Paris

Here are my favorite spots from our recent Paris trip. Forgive me for some very touristy tips 🙂

The Eiffel Tower

Yes, it is the most touristy spot in France, maybe even in Europe, but it is still a must see for everyone. If you cross the road and walk up a little hill you arrive at a great spot for pictures

The Champs Elysee

Well, is there anything better for a fashionista than this beautiful shopping street? Start your stroll at the Arc de Triomphe. I loved the Louis Vuitton flagship store, but there are also some ‘cheaper’ versions like H&M or Zara

Galery Lafayette

Beautiful building, amazing decoration and a lot of jewelery and make up. Try the macaroons

Sacre Couer

The most romantic spot in the city. If you have good weather you can take amazing pictures of the roofs of Paris

A Dinner Cruise on the Seine

I just love dinner cruises. You get good food and explore the city on a totally new ankle

Versailles

Get your butt out of the city and take the bus to the Versailles castle. You get rewarded with  some of the most famous pieces of art

What to see when in…Budapest

So as I am travelling a lot at the moment I thought I introduce a new category: What to see when in…

As I just came back from Budapest, I start with ‘What to see when in… Budapest`

 The Danube river on a dinner cruise

There is no better way to see all the amazing sights around the river than on a ship. You also get in touch with the hungarian kitchen and gain some cultural knowledge as they often play some traditional live music

Walking up to the Fisherman’s Bastion and enjoying the beautiful view over the city

On the way up to the Fisherman’s Bastion and the castle you have an amazing view seeing all the famous sights for example the parliament or the famous chain bridge

Fisherman´s Bastion and castle

After the walk up visit the Fisherman´s Bastion and the castle just next to it. I am always impressed by the beauty of those two places. You will love it

 

Gellert Spa and Bath

Always a winner. This place is amazing for relaxing. It has a big pool with a hot bath next to it as well as seperated men and women 36°C hot baths. Even in winter you can sit in a hot bath outside with a great view over the city.

Eat a kürtöscalacs also called a pastry horn.

This is a sweet bread dough that you can get in different tastes: vanilla, choclate, cinamon and nuts yummy
